drank Tangerine by Tea Madame
36 tasting notes

Pretty tea when dry—the leaves are rich, deep green. I don’t have a list of ingredients, but there might be rose or other flower petals in it. There are also dried pieces of the eponymous fruit.

The only thing I can smell in the dry tea is the tangerine. It also smells kind of oily. I steeped the same batch of leaves (1 tsp) twice:
(1) 5-6 oz boiling water, 10-12 seconds
(2) 5-6 oz 175-185 water, 30-60 seconds

The first tea brought out some bitterness, so I’m guessing I steeped it too long. The scent of the liqueur had floral/vegetal undertones, but again, there was that overpowering tangerine smell. The green tea in the background either tasted bland or bitter, and steeping it longer was only going to make the fruit taste stronger.

I left the remainder of my 1oz sample in the employee lounge for the kitchen fairies to try.

An oolong monster who lives in a remote island chain where it is difficult to obtain loose leaf tea. She used to eschew the beverage, but she now considers herself a devotee of fine leaf water. You can talk to the monster—she doesn’t bite (only slurps).
